The Perfect Sofa for the Very Literal Book Lover

Shaunacy Ferro

Assert your love of literature with both your bookshelves and your butt. A new sofa by the Italian design studio Prospettiva Design is for the most literal of book lovers’ living rooms. 

Created by designer Randy Colombo, it spells out “book” in bubbly cushion letters. The curvaceous forms of the first three letters of the word become seats, and the “k” forms a little side table.

“Book is not to be taken too seriously,” the creators write of the sofa. It would be perfect for a teacher’s classroom or a playfully ironic hipster loft. Hopefully it's not the only book in your house, though. 

The sofa is made in Italy and comes in both a two-seat and a three-seat option. The fabric, available in 20 different color combinations, is water-repellent and hypoallergenic.
